Velvet Revolver’s Scott Weiland Leaves Rehab


March 4, 2008

Rocker Scott Weiland has been discharged from a rehab treatment center after a 28-day stay. The singer, who fronts both Velvet Revolver and the reformed Stone Temple Pilots, is “doing well”, his attorney Tony Brooklier tells website

Weiland has a long history of drink and drug problems which have culminated in convictions for driving under the influence (DUI) and buying crack cocaine. The singer also faces fresh DUI charges after he was arrested in November, following an accident on a California highway.

Reformed band Stone Temple Pilots will play their first show in almost seven years at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio this May. The singer’s other band, Velvet Revolver, was forced to scrap a series of shows to allow Weiland time to concentrate on rehab.
